Baking: Banana Bread in a Flower Pot
This recipe makes 2 very moist loaves of banana bread.
This recipe makes 2 loaves baked in Medium sized Terra Cotta pots sold at Walmart for $1.00 each.
After purchasing the pots, make sure to take off any stickers and wash well. Stuff a small ball of wax paper into the drain hole in the bottom of the pot. I also cut circles of wax paper to fit the bottom of the pots. I greased the pots generously with crisco.
2 cups sugar
6 very ripe bananas
2 tsp. baking soda
2 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 c. broken walnuts
Mash bananas in separate bowl. Cream together butter, sugar, and eggs. Add bananas and beat well. Add dry ingredients and mix only until smooth. Stir in chopped nuts. SEPARATE INTO 2 WELL GREASED MEDIUM SIZED FLOWER POTS). Put flower pots on a cookie sheet and bake @ 350 degrees for about 70 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean when poked in.
-Let cool on a cooling rack
Cut squares of waxed paper of fabric to Place over the top of the bread, and tie with pretty ribbon.
